    Anyone order a neck from Musikraft since COVID started? How long did you end up waiting? I just placed an order and I'm curious as to how long I need to prepare myself for.

    Thanks in advance!

    There was a thread on TGP that had some answers. Long is all I remember.

    I ordered a couple of necks on 10 June. Received them around 5 October. Easily worth the wait!

    Ah, cool, not bad considering. I saw on their website that the had cut back on several lines to keep the most popular stuff moving, that was my interpretation anyway.

    Not bad, I agree. If I recall correctly, they had to deal with a week-long power outage too.

    Ordered a neck on 10/23. Notified on 11/23 that it moved to CNC. Nothing since then.

    I had one arrive in 10 weeks earlier in the year. (Really like these... though I haven't tried others.)

    Ordered mine in May, took about 5 months to get. Roasted maple with the $20 nitro finish. Great neck!

    I do love their necks. I have a Frankenstein neck and it is without a doubt the best neck I’ve ever played. I ordered another one to do a Bumblebee replica.

    Musikraft has always answered my emails promptly, did you ask them?

    I’ve ordered 5 necks from them and they all came within the estimated time...but that was prior to COVID.

    My most recent order took 17 weeks. That's a long time, and considerably longer than the estimate (which was 10 weeks), but COVID and their power outage make it pretty hard to get upset about it.

    They better slow down. Someone might get hurt... Geez that's terrible. Hopefully the wait is worth it.

    Speaking of wait times, I ordered a couple of items from China 3 weeks ago and they were here yesterday. I always wait at least 6 to 8 weeks or more.

    Received the neck on Saturday. It took forever but those boys at Musikraft don’t disappoint.

    Beauty! Less than 4 months if I've done the math correctly? I'm at 10 weeks and counting... Status has been "In CNC" for a couple weeks at least.

    I'm excited after seeing your new neck!
